GOLF legend Greg Norman sold his incredible $39.2million Seven Lakes ranch in Colorado two years ago.
Dubbed a “sporting paradise”, the property – sold in June 2020 – is surrounded by rivers and mountains and considered the finest fishing and hunting ranch in the state.
Amongst dozens of incredible features, the ranch even includes a saloon and dance hall, as well as the 14,000-square-foot lodge.
Australian fishing-nut Norman, 67 – dubbed the Great White Shark – owned the expansive plot of land, which includes two miles of private river, for over two decades.
It is located in the White River Valley of the Flat Tops Mountains in Colorado, providing superb opportunities for big game hunting and fishing.
Listed for sale in May 2020, the Hall and Hall ad claims: “The ranch is located in the heart of the White River herd, one of the largest elk and deer migrations in the Rocky Mountains.
“The sought-after combination of big river and excellent big game habitat is aptly complemented by a magnificent setting for a luxurious lakeside lodge.
“Limited hunting on the ranch has resulted in a veritable wildlife sanctuary, with plentiful populations of game, especially elk and mule deer.
“The White River is well known as an outstanding trout fishery, and Seven Lakes Ranch encompasses nearly two miles of a premier stretch of it.
“[It boasts] high-quality private water, with impressive populations of rainbows, browns, cutthroat trout, as well as the occasional whitefish.”
And things are equally impressive inside the lodge too, featuring eight bedrooms with log fires – all set overlooking breathtaking scenery.
Strong transportation links allow guests to head out of the lodge too, for some horseback riding and biking in the summer or snowmobiling and ice-skating in the winter.
The listing continues: “The lodge with eight guest suites features massive logs and soaring double-sided moss rock fireplace, rustic bar and commanding views out the great room’s wall of windows.
“[There’s] an expansive lakeside stone patio is perfect for entertaining, and for breathtaking sunsets.
“A variety of cabins provide additional accommodations and are complemented by an authentic saloon/dance hall, and operations buildings.
“An extensive internal road network and trail system links the improvements and a wide variety of recreational activities for multi-generational enjoyment including long distance shooting range, sporting clays, horseback riding, biking and hiking, snowmobiling and ice skating.”
Norman won 89 titles during his career, including two Open Championships and spent 331 weeks as world No1.
The Aussie was even inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2001 in recognition of his stellar career.
And he proved he’s still in top shape even in his 60s, after posing naked for the ESPN Body Issue in 2018.
Norman is a key figure in the Saudi-backed LIV Golf series, which has seen a number of high-profile golfers jump from the PGA Tour.
The Australian has reportedly been given $3bn to tempt the world’s best to play in the competition.
